60 Books in 6 Days Round 5!

Yes indeedy folks we have come to day five! Time flies around here! So let's do this! 41-50!

41. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

This book is fabulous! Eric Carle's illustrations will alway impress and astound me! This book is perfect for a smaller child who can help you answer the question of "What do you see?" A classic all around!

42. Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

No matter how much he begs-do not let the pigeon drive the bus! When a bus driver takes a break from his route, a very unlikely volunteer springs up to take his place-a pigeon! But you've never met one like this before. As he pleads, wheedles, and begs his way through the book, children will love being able to answer back and decide his fate.

43. Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late! 

Hurrying away to brush his teeth, the pajama-clad bus driver implores readers not to let his feathered friend stay up late. Youngsters are thrust into the role of caregiver as the puerile pigeon attempts to talk his way out of the inevitable, coming up with requests that range from manipulative (I hear there's a good show about birds on TV tonight. Should be very educational) to cajoling (Y'know, we never get to talk anymore. Tell me about your day) to classic (Can I have a glass of water?). Meanwhile, the fowl fights yawns and tries to keep his wide eye open, despite a drooping lid. Defying drowsiness to the last, he finally falls asleep, clutching his stuffed bunny tightly under his wing. I love the Pigeon series! They are hilarious!

44. Chrysanthemum 

She was a perfect baby, and she had a perfect name. Chrysanthemum. When she was old enough to appreciate it, Chrysanthemum loved her name. And then she started school. "I'm named after my grandmother," said Victoria. "You're named after a flower." Chrysanthemum wilted. Life at school didn't improve. In fact, it got worse. Then the students were introduced to their music teacher, Mrs. Twinkle. Mrs. Delphinium Twinkle. And suddenly, Chrysanthemum blossomed! A cute book about loving who you are!!

45. Miss Nelson is Missing

As a person who substitute taught for 4 years this is still one of my favorite books! The kids in Room 207 were misbehaving again. Spitballs stuck to the ceiling.  Paper planes whizzing through the air. They were the worst-behaved class in the whole school. The students don’t proffer a shred of respect for their good-natured teacher Miss Nelson, but when the witchy substitute Miss Viola Swamp appears on the scene, they start to regret their own wicked ways. This one is CLASSIC! 

46. Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type 

This book is just flat out funny! I love it! Another book with a shiny medal on it, which it completely deserves!! Farmer Brown has a problem. His cows like to type. All day long he hears Click, clack, MOO. Click, clack, MOO. Clickety, clack, MOO. But Farmer Brown's problems REALLY begin when his cows start leaving him notes....join the fun as a bunch of literate cows turn Farmer Brown's farm upside down.

47. Giggle, Giggle, Quack

Farmer Brown is going on holiday and so he asks his brother, Bob, to take care of the animals. 'But keep an eye on Duck. He's trouble.' Bob follows the instructions in Farmer Brown's notes exactly to the letter. He orders pizza with anchovies for the hens, bathes the pigs with bubble bath, and lets the cows chose a movie. Is that giggling he hears? The duck, the cows, the hens and the pigs are back in top form in this hilarious follow-up to 'Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type'. I dare you to try not to laugh through this one! The illustrations are precious and the story line will make you giggle! 

48. If You Give a Cat a Cupcake

By now it should not be a surprise to you that I love the "If you give..." books! This one is no exception! If you give a cat a cupcake, he'll ask for some sprinkles to go with it. When you give him the sprinkles, he might spill some on the floor. Cleaning up will make him hot, so you'll give him a bathing suit . . . and that's just the beginning!

49. Sheep in a Jeep

Beep! Beep! Sheep in a jeep on a hill that’s steep. Sheep in a Jeep is well loved for its slapstick story of five sheep (in a jeep) and silly sound effects—especially when the jeep goes splash and thud in the mud! Great for beginner readers! And the rhymes are great! 

50. Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears

Have you ever wondered why those pesky mosquitoes buzz in your ear? After a tragedy happens in the jungle all of the animals gather to tell their side of the story. Only there's a problem! Mosquito stirs up a bit of trouble with what he has to say! A very good fable! 

That's it ya'll! It's crazy to think that tomorrow is the last day of my challenge! I've saved a few of my best for last! See you tomorrow! KISSES!
